Cooperation Summit VI
September 9-10, 2015
New York City
The EastWest Institute is proudly hosting the 2015 Global Cyberspace Cooperation Summit in New York City on September 9-10.
EWI’s Global Cooperation in Cyberspace Initiative is convening policymakers, business leaders, technical experts and civil society with the objective to reduce conflict, crime and other disruptions in cyberspace and promote stability, innovation and inclusion.
The Summit 2015
An invitation-only event, this meeting of international actors aims to coordinate and consolidate progress, showcase results and promote collective action. The annual cyber summits provide a crucial forum for building international, private-public action to foster international cooperation in cyberspace. Breakthrough groups, aligned with the initiative’s objectives of economic and political development, digital security and stability, and sound governance and management, carry the program forward.
Learn more about the summit's seven breakthrough groups:
Cyberspace has become the most essential infrastructure to the conduct of global business and government. These institutions thrive on predictability and continuity. As a steady stream of virulent cyber attacks demonstrates, however, the global digital environment is becoming an increasingly unpredictable and unstable space, where risks are extremely difficult to evaluate and manage.
The initiative’s objective is to reduce conflict, crime and other disruptions in cyberspace and promote stability, innovation and inclusion. Cyber-enabled crime, insecure technology, state-sponsored censorship and the proliferation of cyber weapons are issues which must be addressed globally by cooperative action.
Over the past six years, EastWest’s cyber collaboration has integrated public and private leadership to address several serious challenges in cyberspace. Building on the work of previous summits, this sixth summit will convene government and corporate leaders, along with civil society and EWI’s fellows to address these and other issues threatening the future of cyberspace and its ability to deliver benefits to citizens around the world.
EWI will utilize its proven trust-building process – Convene, Reframe, Mobilize – in aiming to achieve this objective.
